Visits

Several visits are arranged each year to organisations in and around Cambridge who have an international reputation for the application of research. You must be a member of CSAR to join a visit, and on most occasions you will need to provide your own transport. There is a charge of £10 per person to cover costs. Where there is a chance that a visit will be oversubscribed, members with individual or family subscriptions may be offered priority booking.

Once events are listed, places can be booked and paid for through Eventbrite.

Visits last season included trips to Encocam's Crash Test laboratory, the Wellcome Genome Campus, and to Huxley-Bertram Engineering. Here are some comments from attendees:

‘Absolutely fascinating visit - an amazing amount of value added to a roll of aluminium foil - and the crash test dummies are a revelation. The helmet design piece with its mini video clips of crushing were highly absorbing!'

'Brilliant visit, covering the history of Maxwell as the first professor of science at Cambridge right up to the leading-edge research being undertaken now. All of the guides - not least Sir Richard Friend - were excellent.'

‘Another fascinating CSAR visit.’
